Marie and Hiram Clark

BYA Beaver Branch ~ Murdock Academy, Class of 1917? Marie McGregor. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Marie McGregor Clark, age 95, died Thursday, August 17, 1995 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was born September 30, 1899 in Parowan, Utah, to Dr. Joseph Franklin McGregor and Lena Isabella Durham McGregor. She was married to Hiram W. Clark, who died in Denver, Colorado in 1939. Marie grew up in Southern Utah, where her father was, at various times, an attorney and later a family physician in Parowan, Richfield, Utah and Beaver, Utah. Dr. McGregor moved his family to Beaver so the children could attend Murdock Academy. Marie graduated from Murdock Academy, and later attended LDS Business College and the University of Utah. Marie met her husband Hiram through mutual friends, and they were married May 21, 1920 in Salt Lake City, (later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple). Hiram had degrees in both mechanical and electrical engineering, and he was one of Salt Lake's first environmental engineers, and also taught at the University of Utah. Hiram and Marie lived in the 33rd Ward for nine years, during which time their two daughters, Betty and Elaine were born. Hiram's career took him to Denver in 1929, where he was district engineer-sales manager for several states for a large manufacturing company. While in Denver, Marie became very active in Relief Society work, first as a Denver Branch counselor and later president, and subsequently as counselor to Ada Pratt Seegmiller, wife of Western States Mission President, William Seegmiller. At the time, this mission covered most of Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, Arizona and New Mexico (there were no stakes in Denver at that time), and the calling involved travel throughout the mission. After the death of her husband in 1939, Marie moved to Provo, Utah so her two daughters could attend BYU. While there she again served in several Relief Society callings, including Relief Society President in the Provo Fourth Ward. She was also active in literary clubs and other cultural groups in Provo. Her daughters graduated from BYU (Betty as valedictorian in 1943 and Elaine with a "rare-for-a-woman" math/physics major in 1944). Both Betty and Elaine were married in 1943; Betty to G. Robert Ruff and Elaine to George S. Robison. Marie moved back to Salt Lake City into the Eleventh Ward neighborhood, where Dr. McGregor and his family had lived for many years. Marie lived in various residences, all in the 11th Ward of the Salt Lake Central stake, for 49 years. Marie worked for the Relief Society Magazine for some 30 years. Marie is survived by brothers: Claude Eldon (and wife Athens) Salt Lake City; Dean Lowell (wife Jeanette) Renton, Washington; Arden Durham, Northern California; Marvin Durham (wife Edith) Palo Alto, California; two sisters, Helen and Julia McGregor in Jackson, Wyoming; 11 grandchildren, 46 great-grandchildren and five great- great-grandchildren.

Mary and Leo Killian

Faculty & Staff. Mary McGregor, Music teacher (Glee Club and Chorus), 1936-1941. "I'm so busy; please remind me to remember not to forget!" Hobby: reading plays. Favorite sport: playing hearts. Worst fault: absent-mindedness. ~ ~ ~ ~ Yes, I remember the glorious, creative days of the BYU Training School. This school was like a small private school within the university itself. It consisted of the elementary grades -- kindergarten through sixth and included high school. It was open to children living in Provo and was attended by many BYU professors' children, such as Dr. Pardoe and Dr. Garret de Jong. Other families sent their children also. Karl N. Snow attended with his brothers and sisters. I assume that a small fee was charged. Miss Hermese Peterson was head of the school and encouraged teachers to love the children and build within the child a thirst for learning. The year was 1936. I had just graduated from the BYU as a vocal student of Dr. Florence Jepperson Madsen. President Franklin S. Harris offered me a position teaching singing at the BYU Training School. My responsibilities included a university class of students my own age who were planning to teach music in elementary grades and assisting William F. Hanson in the Boy's and Girl's Choruses in high school. My days were full of joy and excitement as I developed my own creative approach for teaching music to children. This all came together after four exciting years at the Training School. We presented The Nutcracker Suite in the old Women's Gym on 500 North across from the Training School. The gym became a theater in the round by placing the audience on bleachers and the symphony orchestra on the stage. I wrote the story of The Nutcracker as a poem and it was read while the symphony played and one hundred children in beautiful costumes brought the story to life. For one hour the children performed their singing with joy. This was a marvelous school, small enough to meet the needs of each precious child. The Training School was a pearl - a Pearl of Great Price, where children's souls were filled with a thirst for learning. I shall always treasure my time there. The bell in the old Academy Bell Tower rang for students to change classes. Dr. Pardoe, head of the Drama department, asked the students who were going to the upper campus to take the ten minutes allotted and get aquainted with the opposite sex! I one week, I was amazed at the boys I became aquainted with. Mary McGregor Killian, Provo. [Provo Daily Herald, September 7, 2001] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Mary McGregor Killian, beloved mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend passed away on March 18, 2006. With a song in her heart, Mary was born on February 3, 1913 to Dr. Alpine and Alma Gertrude Watson McGregor in Beaver, Utah. She was the youngest of seven children. A 1936 graduate of Brigham Young University in Music and Drama, she starred in nearly every production during her college years. Mary served as a faculty member at Brigham Young High School from 1936-1941. She married Leo G. Killian in the LDS Mesa, Arizona Temple on May 21, 1941. Mary's life was one of service and song. She studied voice under Dr. Florence Jepperson Madsen of BYU. Mary touched the lives of thousands with her music and magnetic spirit. She sang professionally, taught music, English and drama to all grades, kindergarten-university. Her professional career spanned 47 years as both a teacher and a principal. She received numerous honors and awards. In 1956, she sang the Star Spangled Banner at the Republican National Convention. She was awarded a PTA Life Membership in 1961, received the Valley Forge Teachers Medal in 1971 and was recognized as an Outstanding Leader in Elementary and Secondary Education in 1976. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and always bore her testimony of Jesus Christ through her God-given talents. While residing in the San Diego area from 1962 through 1988, she directed numerous choirs and musical programs in the El Cajon, San Diego East and Sweetwater Stakes. Music was her life and love. Her golden years were filled with vibrant watercolors, sweet poetry and endless service. She was truly an elegant and elect lady. "Guten Abend, Gute Nacht," dearest Mother. We will always let your song fill our hearts. Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Leo G. Killian. She is survived by one brother, Mar McGregor (Pat), Colorado; her children Cynthia-Mar Thomas (Veston) of Provo, Utah and Glen H. M. Killian (Barbara) of El Cajon, California; 10 grandchildren; three great- grandchildren. Funeral services were held April 4, 2006 in Provo.
